Tea Leaves and Green Jade

No Ordinary Love

Match Twelve: No Ordinary Love:

Yao came over again tonight. More like Ju invited him over.

"You wanted to see me?" he asked.

"Yes," she said in a low voice. "Would you like to come in?" Yao followed her into her house.

"What is all of this about?" he asked when they made it to the kitchen.

"Would you like anything to drink?" she asked with her back turned to him.

"No thank you," he replied. "What did you call me over here for this late at night?" Ju pressed her lips together at the fridge.

"What am I to you?" she asked. Yao made a strange face at her.

"Are we back to that one again?" he asked.

"Yao, please!" she pleaded. He lowered his head.

"We are partners," the older man explained to her.

"Is that all?" she asked. Yao couldn't understand where this was heading.

"Where is all of this coming from?" he asked. She whipped around from the fridge to face him.

"My ex called me earlier today," she said.


"He wants to come up and see me."

"And why is this a problem?"

His younger partner sat down at the table in front of him with a desperate look in her eyes. "Kiss me."

Yao's eyes widened in shock. "Aru?"

"Kiss me," Ju pleaded again. "Please! I need you to kiss me!" He gave her a reluctant look.

"Are you feeling okay?" he asked.

"I will as soon as you kiss me," she pressed. Yao lowered his shoulders and gave her a small kiss on her lips. He stayed for ten seconds before pulling away. Ju looked at him straight in the eye.

"Kiss me again," she whispered. Yao gave her another kiss.

"Again," Ju said. He gave her another small one.

"Again," she pleaded. His younger partner demanded more kisses in an attempt to try and feel something from him. Yao finally took hold of her in his arms and pinned her against the wall. His tongue darted straight into her mouth. She buried her hands into his long, dark hair.

"Don't let me go," Ju whispered in between kisses. Yao's body pinned her in place against her kitchen wall. His young partner closed her eyes in an attempt to feel something. He couldn't understand the pain that she was now venturing into, but he felt that he had to stay until she was ready to talk to him properly. With that thought in mind, he led her back to her bedroom.

Ju fell back onto her bed, looking up. Yao climbed on top and kissed her again. She reached up and pulled him closer to him. During the whole time, the clan leader tried to make sense of the whole night. The images from the file, Stephen's voice, and Yao's affection threw her into a strange land. Ju hoped that each kiss and caress would straighten her out.

"Don't leave me tonight," she begged in a whisper.

"I won't," Yao said back in her ear. His hands moved up her black sweater. She moaned in his mouth when his fingertips met with her skin. I want… I want… Her fingers unbuttoned his jacket. She let her body become tangled up with his within her sheets. This was all that she could do to keep her sanity in check until she could talk clear again.

Don't let me go, Yao. I need you tonight. However, she knew that this fix would kill something inside of her even further. Still, she couldn't stop or else the other extreme would plunge her back into that madness.

Don't let me go. Don't let me go!
